Alleged Fast and Furious murderer apprehended

PJMediaIt's been seven long years, but the alleged triggerman suspected of shooting and killing Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2010 with a U.S. government-supplied gun, was apprehended in Mexico Wednesday.

The suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, allegedly used a gun from Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-running scheme set up under then-Attorney General Eric Holder. Under Operation Fast and Furious, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area gun shops with the purported intention of tracking them once they made their way into Mexico.

Instead, the ATF managed to "lose track" of more than 1,400 out of the 2,000 guns they allowed smugglers to buy, leading to deadly consequences on both sides of the border. Coincidentally, the firearms that Holder’s Department of Justice allowed to walk into Mexico were the very same types of guns Obama, Holder, and Clinton publicly spoke about wanting to ban.

This corrupt, callous, criminal operation should have put an end to the prospects of the gun control movement in America for generations.
